Subject: Standards Question

A discussion about math standards and how and if they can be
incorporated into the POW site of the Math Forum may be helpful.

Sample Questions to get you thinking...

Does your school district require your lessons to reference the NCTM
standards?

Do you need to do paper work showing that what you teach in math
follow the math standards?

Does your district ignore the standards? If your district presently
does nothing with the standards, are there moves to somehow
incorporate them into your future curricular plans?

How does your state treat the standards?

Does your state have its own standards? Are they similar to the
NCTM's?

Would referencing the NCTM standards somehow with the POW's be of
benefit to you?
